Marquee tag in HTML for scrolling text
HTML provides a special feature which enables us to display scrolling and animated text in the Web page. This tag is supported by Internet Explorer , Firefox and Netscape 7 and above. Netscape has its blink tag which blinks text placed inside this tag, but Internet Explorer does not support blink tag.
Usually scrolling texts are used to give messages or display some special announcements to the visitors. Using this we can make some part of the text stand out than others. Over time as content became important the uses of animation reduced in last some years.
